About

I am a third year PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania. I work primarily with Meredith Tamminga and David Embick. My primary interests lie in experimental approaches to the mental representation of linguistic variation. 

I am affiliated both with the Variation & Cognition lab and with the Embick Lab at Penn. 

I am half English, half Dutch, and before studying at Penn I completed my BA in Liberal Arts & Sciences (major: Linguistics and Cognitive Neuroscience) at University College Utrecht, in the Netherlands, and my MSc in Applied Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition at the University of Oxford, in the UK.
